HC Deb 18 May 1973 vol 856 c398W
Mr. Knox

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how much was spent on primary school building in Staffordshire in each of the past three years; and how many primary schools were built in Staffordshire in each of these years.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

The following table gives the number of major primary school projects completed in Staffordshire in each of the three years, and the cost of those projects. Information about the expenditure incurred during those years on work in progress is not available in the Department.

Mrs. Thatcher

Up to yesterday, 55 education authorities in England had submitted capital programmes costing about £6.9 million in 1974–75 and £6.9 million in 1975–76. They were not asked for details of individual projects. I hope soon to receive proposals from the remaining 91 authorities, and to announce allocations for both years before the end of the summer.
